Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) said on Thursday that they are not ruling out possibility of hosting two international T20 matches between Asia XI and World XI to mark the birth centenary of Bangladesh's father of the nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, reports Cricbuzz.
Earlier, the board postponed the two proposed matches in light of the current Covid-19 outbreak. The matches were scheduled to be played on March 21 and 22 while an AR Rahman concert was due to take place on March 18.
"We still have plan to host it [T20 matches between World XI and Asia XI]," BCB chief executive Nizamuddin Chowdhury told reporters at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in the city on Thursday.
"You know due to the pandemic we had to [postpone] the plans that we had regarding celebrating the birth centenary of the father of the nation,'' he said. We have not ruled out those plans totally and if the condition allows us we will certainly execute those plans," he said.
Though coronavirus situation is yet to stabilise in the country, BCB is trying to resume cricket with the three-team 50-over tournament from October 11.
"The West Indies series [in January 2021] stands as part of FTP commitment and we are taking with them regularly. They have asked for few information and we have provided it to them," said Nizamuddin.
